2006 Hillary: U.S. Needs ‘Physical Barriers’ On the Mexican Border

Here’s further proof that our country has been goose-stepping sharply to the left in the past few decades: even Hillary Clinton once believed that the U.S. needed “physical barriers” placed on the border with Mexico in order to stem the flow of illegals.

At that time, she was even in favor of deporting people. My, how times have changed.

In the video below, which was taken from a speech Clinton gave to the Council on Foreign Relations in October 2006, she argues that the Mexican government’s policies are “pushing migration north across our border.” She further says that we need to “secure our borders” with “physical barriers” in addition to implementing “tougher employer sanctions” for those businesses that hire illegals as well as “deport” any who’ve “committed transgressions.”

What do you think about the sharp difference between her stance then and her practically ‘open borders’ attitude of today? Why is talking about securing our nations borders only racist when Trump brings it up?

A quick 30 second clip from Clinton’s speech to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2006:

The full speech is here. The bit about the Mexican border comes around the 50 minute mark.
